Coffee with Cassandra: Increasing access to care through grant-making

Before you start your workday, enjoy your morning coffee with brew from Methodist Healthcare Ministries. This is your daily dose of stories that speak to the heart of our organization, paired with your favorite cup of joe!

At Methodist Healthcare Ministries, one of the ways we fulfill our mission — “Serving Humanity to Honor God” — is through strategic grant-making. In order to increase access to affordable health care for the least served, we fund organizations who share similar missions across our 74-county service area. Our goal through grant-making is to create measurable impact at the community and regional levels.

For this edition of Coffee with Cassandra, I had the opportunity to talk with Jane Hevezi a senior program officer in our Community Grants department. Jane works with a portfolio of our funded partners to guide them through their grants. She describes how our grant-making structure focuses on building a firm relationship with our Funded Partners to make a difference in South Texas communities.
